'Tis the season for floral dresses and Anthropologie is overwhelming me with all their gorgeous prints of colorful blooms. How's a girl to choose?

It was a small town Texas weekend for us. We met up with some friends in Lockhart for barbecue-eating at Black's, the oldest bbq restaurant in Texas, and then headed to Gruene to hear some live music and lounge around by the Guadalupe River. This Texas living is still so novel to me, and I'm loving every minute of it.

Can you believe that color? The Maine Root soda company has a special edition Texas flavor called Pink Drink. It's made with prickly pear cactus juice, which gives it that outrageous hue, and it's sweetened with agave. I've had it a couple times already alongside pork buns and tacos, and I keep going back for more.

After singing some of my favorite classic hymns at church ("He liiiives within my heart!"), there's nothing I like more than gathering around the table for a spring-inspired lunch, involving lots of items of the egg-variety and a few sweets. Here's some Easter inspiration for your table if you're on the hunt.
[found here: dried flowers; elderflower cordial; beet-pickled deviled eggs; placemats; Easter bread; lamb chops; pasta and peas; animal plates; lemon cake; tray; chocolate mushrooms]

It was a gloomy weekend in Austin, but that didn't stop us from eating ice cream at Lick, one of our favorite spots. Five words: Texas sheet cake ice cream. Brilliant! We also stopped by East Side King for pork buns and more deliciousness and mixed in some furniture shopping and apartment organizing. All in all, a tasty and productive weekend.

Let's jump back into the monthly photo project with an easy to capture theme: lunch. I think it'll give a fun, little glimpse into our daily lives. I'll share the results on Wednesday, April 30th. Email me your photo and information in advance, so I can highlight images from some of you. Send it to: southernhostess[at]gmail.com Have a great weekend!
